Mohawk battles Seneca Sting tonight in semi-finals
The defending national champion Mohawk College Mountaineers men’s basketball team scored 23 fourth quarter points en rote to a 69-62 come -from-behind victory over the Algonquin Thunder in OCAA quarter-final action Thursday night.
“We expected it to be a tough first game and I thought we showed a ton of resilience in coming back from a 12 point third quarter deficit,” said Mountaineers’ head coach Brian Jonker. “The guys never got down and never believed we wouldn’t come back.”
Algonquin led the game 41-36 at the half and 48-46 after three quarters before the Mountaineers came back in the final frame.
The Sting downed Humber 89-77 in their quarter final match.
“We are in for another tough one tonight against Seneca on their home floor,” said Jonker. “I hope our experience continues to show through. It should be a great game.”
